Chicago Fire coach Klopas to scout Europe, Atletico Madrid

Chicago Fire head coach Frank Klopas is set to embark on a scouting mission of Europe and says he will also use strong contacts at Spanish club Atletico Madrid.

The Fire and Atletico have formed a strong relationship and Klopas insists he will tap into their resources in a bid to bring some talent back to Toyota Park.

"It's about working relationships like the one we have with Atletico Madrid where we're connected to teams all over the world," he told Chicago Fire Confidential.

"We might have some opportunities with them and access to players they can provide.

"I'm going to spend time (at partner Atletico Madrid) looking at some players.

"Whether it's in this window or the next one or down the line I think there will be opportunities where we will bring in players and have a working relationship with them.

"There is a summit planned with Atletico on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th and I'll spend some time in Spain with the first team and their reserve team and academy program looking at player opportunities for sure".
